tourist to New York

The Shelburn hotel is a beautiful place to stay. The bell hops and doormen were very friendly and helpful. The room was extremely spacious and the decor was clean and modern. We had a one bedroom suite with a sofa bed in the living room and a king bed in the bedroom. The bedroom had a large closet, a big dresser and the bathroom was located in the bedroom as well. There are lots of great delis and cafes within a few blocks of the hotel and it's within walking distance to some great shopping like Saks 5th Ave and Lord and Taylors. We did walk to the Time Square area and Broadway, but it is quite a long walk. Before moving to this hotel, I stayed a few nights at the Hampton Inn Time Square and I actually preferred that hotel because it was only a couple of blocks from all the shops and entertainment on Broadway, they offered a great breakfast, and 24/7 coffee and tea bar plus fresh cookies welcome you at the front desk in the afternoons. The Shelburn is a more luxurious hotel and is roomy for a group, but it didn't offer a lot of extra services and one of the elevators was broken so it took forever to get up or down. I would recommend it but you will need to use a lot more taxis to get around.

great service

great friendly service , rooms good size and clean though need to be updated (brown walls should never be seen in a hotel) good location quieter area though easy to walk to subway grand central terminal , bryant park , empire state , macys broadway etc , good restaurant downstairs with great burgers, friendly doormen (arranged to keep out bags for us as flight delayed and arranged taxi to airport for a good price) and concierge service, good restaurant tips and arranged broadway show. mary poppins is a must see. good deli down the road called blooms (thanks to chris the concierge) if you want 5 star then im afraid you wont get it here , pay 5 star and stay elsewhere , what you get here is a very clean basic hotel with very friendly people , just please sort out the lifts .

Friendly Staff and a good price

We stayed at the Affinia-Shelburne recently for my bachelor party in NYC. I was hoping for the one of the two-bedroom suites with a terrace, but they were booked solid that weekend. We ended up with a little less space than I would have hoped for in a suite, but the service at the hotel was very nice. Nikki, I believe, at the front desk, was very nice and helpful and gave us all the information we needed. She offered to have the sofa bed made up and ready for our return. We actually spent most of the night in the city, so the room served as a little place to share some drinks and food at the end of a wild night on the town. The room was very clean, and the hotel provided everything I asked for. The elevators were small and a bit slow at times, especially the next morning during check-out. The price was very good, however, if I planned another event or bachelor shindig, I would probably shop around and spring for a larger suite, or book further in advance so I could have the two-bedroom suite, which would accommodate a large group much better. Overall, a nice stay with a great staff and great service, and much appreciated Philosophy bath products!

Not bad for NY average for any other 4 STAR hotel

You expect more when you pay 200$ a night. But what you get is average however not bad considering average cost of a pint of beer is 7$. Room was not bad, it was very clean, comfortable. We got a room that look at an alley real ugly view. No pool but the workout room is very nice. Roof top bar is pretty good. Location is excellent.
